Amaravati, March 26 (PTI): Andhra Pradesh Supreme Court justices are getting a fleet of brand new sedans to use as state government approved the purchase of 20 Kia Carnival Premium vehicles at a price of Rs 6.30.

The state government gave permission to purchase the limousines, each valued at 31.50 lakh, late Thursday evening, within hours after the High Court’s Chancellor General wrote a letter asking the former for approval and an additional budget of 6, Rs 30 assigns.

The AP High Court currently has 19 judges, including the Chief Justice and the Chancellor General, who said the new sedans were for their use.

Despite the grave financial crisis, the government decided to make an exemption in the High Court case and oblige judges, with instructions for file release coming directly from the chief minister’s office, bureaucratic sources said.

“Ten, if not hundreds of millions of rupees in payments are blocked for lack of money, and there is a general ban on buying new vehicles. Even payments of several crore rupees for Covid-19 management are not paid for months,” said a Top bureaucrat pointed out.

Law and Legislative Secretary V Sunitha issued an order sanctioning the expenditure under the heading “Administration of Justice” and calling on the High Court Chancellor General to take further action on the matter. PTI DBV SS PTI PTI
